Apriso (Long Beach, Calif.) today introduced its Packaging Solution for Global Manufacturers, with the aim of helping them manage complex packaging operations and conversion processes. The company says that manufacturers that implement this solution will have up-to-the-minute visibility into plant floor systems, process and performance. This access can help companies respond faster to change and make more informed decisions about the everyday challenges that face today’s global manufacturers.
The software package integrates at the process level with other enterprise systems (such as BI, ERP, PLM and MES) to give the necessary details about any aspect of production in a real-time fashion. There are hundreds of pre-configured, conversion-specific key performance indicators (KPIs) that help turn manufacturing data into meaningful intelligence and a growth path to enterprise-wide traceability, genealogy and containment. The deep-level integration and KPIs give manufacturers visibility into all conversion activities — material usage, line efficiency, quality inspections, packaging, labeling, palletizing and more — to support said traceability and aid in dealing with regulatory compliance.
In a statement, Rick Gallisa, industry director at Apriso, said, “As a solution designed specifically for global conversion operations, implementations across multiple sites can go live and add value quickly. Apriso’s new Packaging solution provides an ideal framework to manage production and quality operations while also delivering the capabilities needed to quickly extract manufacturing data, and turn it into valuable operational intelligence for informed decision support. This way, clients can instead focus more on improving performance while driving continuous improvement.”
